Planning application submitted for Avon Street student residential development in central Bristol

A planning application has been submitted for an attractive and centrally located student residential development at Avon Street in central Bristol.

Specialist student accommodation developer and operator Victoria Hall Management Limited, with the support of the University of Bristol, is seeking to deliver purpose-built student apartments across two sites in Bristol’s Temple Quarter Enterprise Zone.

Chapman Taylor’s design for the Avon Street site will provide a 502-bed student residence complex across three buildings on the 0.36-hectare site of the former Chanson Foods facility, which sits beside Bristol’s famous floating harbour and close to the university. The proposed development will relieve some of the housing pressure on residential areas nearby and provide high-quality accommodation and shared facilities in a superb location.

The distinctive stepped architecture of the buildings will provide a readily identifiable landmark for passengers travelling in and out of Temple Meads station. The buildings will vary from six to 13 storeys in height, with a standalone two-storey mixed-use hub to the harbour side.

The distinctive architecture of the buildings, which references the craggy slopes of the Avon Gorge and the area's industrial past, will provide a readily identifiable landmark for passengers travelling in and out of Temple Meads station. The buildings will vary from six to 13 storeys in height, with a standalone two-storey mixed-use hub to the harbour side.

The structures will be set back from the street, harbour and railway to provide an improved external landscape and enhanced connectivity as well as allowing for possible future incorporation of the site into the harbour walkway.

The development will have an active ground floor, including a highly active reception area to enhance security for residents and visitors.

Should planning permission be achieved, it is anticipated that the scheme will complete in time for the autumn 2022 opening by the University of Bristol of the adjacent Temple Quarter Enterprise Campus.
